Pepijn Keppel

De laatste man



After ten years of field hockey at the highest level, Pepijn Keppel suddenly quits. His entire adolescence was dominated by top sport, there was little room for anything else. Certainly not for the question of where that all-consuming feeling of loneliness came from. Because he was bullied at school or he really didn't want to play hockey at all? Or maybe because of his sexual orientation? De laatste man is a poignant, but courageous and moving account of the search for one's own identity in an unsafe environment.

“A candid, moving and sometimes painful account of the struggles of a top athlete who does not want to be different, but who still has to accept that he is homosexual.”

– Rik van de Westelaken
